Kimbo will probably go against the winner of Liddel/Ortiz at catchweight. That's probably the best use of the guy. Put him on a weak PPV card or a fight night against a big name who's skills have diminished in a freak show, special attraction, etc. kind of a deal.

Houston's been cut again. And Dana pretty much called him a Caleb Starnes.

There were rumours Chuck was offered it, but turned it down. He thought there was no upside: if he won, he beat Kimbo...so what? It's Kimbo. If somehow Kimbo won, he looks like a joke who lost to a novelty act.

That might actually be a big problem with trying to pair him with any of the main eventers/big names: beating him isn't an accomplishment, and losing makes you look really, really bad. So why take the fight? (and, yes, there's money but most of these guys already have that.)

Well, if offered a ton of money to fight somebody who shouldn't be hard to beat, why not take the fight? Chicken? BAW BAW BAWWWK!
